Traffic headaches from the 88th annual Academy Awards ceremony in Hollywood begin long before the awards show takes place on Feb. 28.

To accommodate press risers, fan bleachers and pre-show stages along the Oscars red carpet, Hollywood Boulevard will be closed between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive beginning at 10 p.m. on Sunday and remain closed until 6 a.m. March 1.

Curb lanes on either side of Hawthorn Avenue between Orange and Highland are closed. Hawthorn Alley between Hollywood Boulevard and Hawthorn Avenue is also shut down.

There'll be some access for residents, pedestrians, emergency vehicles and buses.
